Located in Costières de Nîmes, south of the Rhone Valley, Michel Gassier strives to produce handcrafted wines that express “the nuances of their soils and the sincerity of their winemaker”. As a winemaker, he believes that the less intervention, the more the terroir can express itself. Working with instinct and intellectual rigor, the goal of Domaine Gassier is to further the understanding of the terroirs, only doing what is essential at precisely the right moment, thinking outside the box and avoiding simplistic recipes. That, for Michel Gassier, is how you can produce great wines. He says it is also a matter of teamwork, a duo that he forms with his wife Tina; together they’ve chosen the exceptional terroirs to have given birth to the wines of Michel Gassier.
The wines are ample with ripe fruit and reveal phenomenal balance. Extremely dark in colour signifying the vast concentration. The nose is tremendously complex and powerful, delivering aromas of blackberry, spices, vanilla and eucalyptus fused in perfect harmony. The palate is rich and velvety without being too heavy. This wine draws out to reveal an opulent finish of fresh fruit and ripe tannins.
